Murder on the Half Shelf | Lorna Barrett

Mehso-so

As predicted, I finished this quintessential #cozy at the nail salon. It‘s...fine. Characters are a bit two-dimensional and disagreeable. Setting is charming. Story and writing are a little clunky. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3 for the setting, cat, and recipes.

Checks off New Hampshire for #50states of mystery.

Murder, She Wrote meets Eight Men Out. Mickey is a journeyman ballplayer in the 1910s and #1920s with a journalist friend and an actress girlfriend who help him when he keeps getting embroiled in murder investigations. This one is mostly set in #Michigan with occasional team trips and dinner dates in Canada so they can drink. The mystery is a little facile, but there‘s a lot of atmosphere, and Mickey is a great character. #50states #letstraveljuly

There are a few books in the series in which Kinsey wanders a bit far afield from #California for a chunk of time, but this one is set firmly in the Golden State. She does, however, get away from her hometown of Santa Teresa. This one is especially poignant because it has to do with a missing person cold case and a daughter who‘s lived with the lack of “closure” for many years. #50states

I read this several years ago for a book club that‘s now defunct. It‘s a ridiculous mystery set in Florida, making fun of plastic surgery, landscapers, and other “typical” #Florida things. #50states

Pickpick

Ice Road Truckers meets Criminal Minds! A woman & her deaf daughter travel deep into the remotest part of Alaska to look for her husband who‘s reported dead but no body was found. Improbable but engaging thriller with good characters and vivid descriptions. A mild pick due to the WTH ending. #50states

I‘m stretching a little to use this for #socialmedia focus as there‘s a lot about Twitter and the blog dad & daughter plan to write. #Booked2019 ⬇️

Susanita I had something else in mind for that prompt but abandoned it pretty quickly when it seemed completely ridiculous. 8mo

A woman travels from Copenhagen to Racine, Wisconsin, after learning that her estranged father has died and left her a funeral home to manage. But things aren‘t exactly what they seem! This isn‘t quite a page turner, but it‘s interesting and gives me another book for #50states of mystery. Since it ends on a cliff hanger, I guess I‘ll read the next one.
